Recalling his previous visit to the Punjab town, where the first incident of sacrilege took place and two people died in police firing at protesters, Gandhi said, Your 'dharm' was disrespected.
Strict action will be taken against the perpetrators, he promised. I give you a guarantee on this.
The row over the 2015 incidents continues in Punjab with the Amarinder Singh-led Congress government, blaming the previous Shiromani Akali Dal-Bharatiya Janata Party government in the state for it.
The Congress focus on the desecration religious scriptures comes at a time when the BJP has renewed its attack on the party over the 1984 anti-Sikh riots, both emotive issues in state which goes to the polls on Sunday.
Modi used to make fun of Manmohan Singh. But after five years now, Modi ji does not make fun of Manmohan ji. Today the country is making fun of him, he said.
He accused Modi of not keeping promises like the creation of two crore jobs and putting Rs 15 lakh into the bank account of every citizen.
Accusing Modi of destroying the economy with his two decisions, he said had the PM taken the advice of Manmohan Singh he would not have rolled out demonetisation and the Goods and Services Tax (GST).
Gandhi referred to it as the Gabbar Singh Tax.
He claimed that the former PM had rightly predicted the fall in the country's GDP due to these decisions.
The PM thinks only one person can run the country, but actually it is the people who run it.
Polling for the 13 Lok Sabha seats in Punjab will take place in the last phase of elections on May 19.
